About The Lygon Arms Hotel - The Terrace & Lounges
Indulge & celebrate with a selection of seasonally themed afternoon teas throughout the year in the Lygon Terrace. Alternatively, The Veuve Clicquot Afternoon Tea is our premium option, using one of this country's most prestigious home grown vodkas. Featuring miniature cocktails & cakes, it's the perfect pairing for your memories and moments spent in the Cotswolds.
Our Lygon Terrace by night serves our Bar & Grill menu.
The grill offers a seasonal British menu that celebrates fantastic local ingredients in a relaxed yet imaginative way. The highest-quality produce is at the heart of all dishes, and has stemmed from friendly and sustainable relationships with Cotswolds suppliers, farmers and artisans to produce a varied menu for everyone.
All staff very friendly but mistakes abounded - all sorted with a smile and I wonder how much is atypical and caused by the stress of what's going on. Breakfast menu limited, with no cereal, orange juice or preserves offered. Our car parked by valet in a tight, small area and when we left, found scratches on it as someone had caught it trying to squeeze in...
The terrace was lovely and relaxed but the table was much too high for the chairs we had which was a bit awkward. Food was excellent, cooked to perfection. Ordered half a carafe of wine as we are not big drinkers but would have been nice if it could have been kept cold.
There were a few niggling issues that did take edge off what would have been a lovely stay , might be seen as minor things but when paying premium rates for the stay you would expect that the small details would be what you expect to be done well ! 1. Told we would get a call/ text when our room ready NEVER HAPPENED 2. Wet carpet in room , told reception but got no feedback 3. Ordered dinner and our side orders arrived as we almost finished our main course 4. Breakfast was chaotic to say the least - waitress pretty much forced us to place order as soon as we sat down , tea and toast took an age and repeated requests
Myself and family visited yesterday to celebrate my mums birthday, I had pre-booked and requested an alternative to the afternoon tea for my daughter. I was not happy with the time taken for any service, given the wrong menu for my child and felt like we ‘were at nuisance’ for even being there, we couldn’t even get anyone’s attention to pay our bill so went to the bar to pay where we had to wait even longer as they couldn’t find our table on the till. And for all this I was given the bill with an £18 service charge on!! I don’t think so!!!
Lovely food but considering the restaurants wasn’t busy the service was not great. We waited forever for the condiments to arrive (on the second time of asking ) by which time we had eaten 3/4 of our meal. No one asked if we wanted any desserts/ teas or coffees following our mains so we decided to spare ourselves and go elsewhere. I then had to go and ask for the bill as no one returned following clearing our table. The meal was for my mothers birthday so whilst she enjoyed the food the service was a complete let down I’m sorry to say.
We were in the bar area and very quiet and felt somewhat forgotten about
We ate in the terrace restaurant as the Bar & Grill main restaurant was full. I am a vegetarian and my cheese souffle for starters was really lovely. There were 2 choices for mains vegetarians and my bubble and squeak was delicious. My husband had a scotch egg to start and a sirloin steak for mains. The only negative would be that side dishes were £4 each, so makes the meal expensive as all mains come on their own with no potatoes, vegetables etc. Despite this, we really enjoyed our meal but would have preferred to experience the main restaurant for a special meal. The only negative about the bar is that there are no hand pull beers/ales which my husband found really disappointing bearing in mind we were in a traditional old English hotel. We actually chose to drink at another hotel bar because of this where there were a great choice of hand pull beers and ales.
It was very short notice on my birthday when I phoned to book an afternoon tea. You pul!ed out all the stops and we had the most marvellous time. Thank you Beth you were a starting day. 5/3/20
Really great food and lovely setting.
The hotel overall was good but we had quite a few issues with the meal. You had run out of seats so we were put in armchairs that were ridiculously low for the table. We asked for higher ones and were told there weren't any available. I'm sure if you had looked around this would have been possible. We ended up moving some chairs around ourselves. You then forgot the drinks. So we'd finished eating by the time they came (after we'd reminded you). You also forgot the water so had to order this again too. We hadn't realised that you needed to order sides with the main meal. I've got nothing against this approach - and been in hotels/restaurants before with similar menus - but I think the waiter should have at least pointed this out. I ended up ordering two puddings to fill me up, which I must admit were both excellent (especially the honeycomb parfait).
It was my daughters birthday and we enjoyed it thoroughly however was a bit annoyed about the service charge. This was £14 and we would have tipped without a doubt but felt we had to.pay it.
Wonderful stay at the Lygon Arms and lovely dinner in the Lounge, made even better by being able to bring our dog to dine with us. We were treated like VIP guests. Food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. Highly recommend for a relaxed dinner in a beautiful setting.
The staff were very friendly but there was no organisation or communication between them. We were directed through to the lounge past the bar for our afternoon tea by two members of staff to then be told once we reached it that we cant sit here as we have a wake arriving shortly. We were then asked to sit in the bar for our afternoon tea and shortly after we had sat down, all the guests started arriving and the bar was packed so we asked to move to another area. We waited around 20 minutes for the tea to be served and the tea was only just warm so we had to ask for more. We felt the food served was not worth the £25.00 per person we had paid. For The Lygon Arms we expected more from the service and food we received.
We attended for afternoon tea. The quality of that was excellent and the service was good.
Really enjoyed that afternoon tea. Especially the ambience. Will definitely be back.
Lygon excellence as usual. Everything first rate!
The service was appalling on four occasions we had to ask to be served and they couldn’t even get it right when it arrived
Very special afternoon tea! However a few more savoury items may be an idea for those who don’t or can’t eat sweet items.
Delicious food and lovely staff
Afternoon tea at the Lygon Arms was the best was l could have celebrated my 50th birthday! Enjoyed every minute of being in that beautiful place.
Difficult to assess value as was using gift voucher.
Food was very good Service was very attentive & friendly
Shame you play dreadful loud music. Really was not in the background. But friendly staff made up for it.
Had a lovely time and everyone looked after us superbly,however a special mention for Daniel who while obviously very busy attended to our every need in the lounge.
